There are two basic issues here. 

First is getting a copy of the validator running. Since I'm lazy, I would probably download VirtualBox, install Debian in it and then install the validator using the Debian package (apt-get install w3c-markup-validator). If I wanted to run it  directly under Windows then there are instructions at http://validator.w3.org/docs/install_win.html

You can then use the API (http://validator.w3.org/docs/api.html) from your Java application to interact with it.
